I just spent five days in Texas. Technically, my main purpose there was to play soccer. (I drove down with my team for a tournament in San Antonio.) But, actually what was more important to me was a visit from my dear friend Allison. We met last semester in Costa Rica and since she goes to school just a few hours from San Antonio she came to watch my game and hang out.
It was seriously so wonderful.
We picked up right where we left off and talked and talked and talked. Just like in Costa Rica. Being with Allison brought a load of memories from Latin American flooding back and it was fun/helpful/hilarious to reminisce. I don't know if I will ever be done processing and reflecting on what I experienced in Latin America. I realized that Allison is one of the few people in this world who really understands what I experienced last semester and who knew my thoughts while I was having them. Does that make sense? Anyways, my visit with Allison was a Godsend and I am continually blessed by her friendship.
So. I spent an awesome day and a half with Allison and did not take a
single picture with her using my camera. (She took some with her own,
of course, because she is a great photographer.) All I have are these
super cute pictures of Joshua and me that Allison took. I really must
get better at actually using my camera.
Notice my tippy toes and the Alamo in the background.
And Alyssa, we wished you were there!
